But to do so, we need a dedicated and fully empowered leadership. I have worked long and closely with both – individually and as a team; and I can without a shred of doubt say that Arun and Raj are best placed in experience, expertise and energy to fulfil Lowe Lintas’ business, effectiveness and creative ambitions going forward.”

Arun Iyer

It may be recalled that when Mullen Lintas was launched in mid-2015, Amer Jaleel and ViratTandon were handpicked from within the company to lead Mullen Lintas as Chairman & CCO and CEO respectively. Said George: “Arun Iyer and Raj Gupta at Lowe Lintas and Amer Jaleel and Virat Tandon at Mullen Lintas. All four top-draw talent and all four homegrown leaders. I could not be any happier and proud about this institution called Lintas.”


Said Iyer on the elevation: “Over the last few years, we have really worked hard to build our reputation as India’s most effective agency on the back of breakthrough creative solutions. Nothing gives us more joy than our brands succeeding in the market. It is with this intent that we are getting ready for the future and the plan is to ensure we have the most contemporary hyper-bundled offering in the industry. This is a huge responsibility, but we are both excited and clear on what we need to be doing going forward.”


Raj Gupta

Commenting on his appointment, Gupta said: “This new role is both a privilege and a huge opportunity. Privilege for obvious reasons, but opportunity, because Lowe Lintas is probably at its best in almost a decade, thereby allowing us to re-purpose ourselves for the future with our confidence and self-belief at its peak. Great brands have a purpose that never stops unfolding and with our determination to make Lowe Lintas truly hyper-bundled, we will now have so many more ways to tell our brand stories.”
